The accident happened around midday at the CDC Distribution Center in the 16500 block of East Truman Road in Independence. Nirwal is a resident of Brampton, Ontario, in Canada. Witnesses told police that Nirwal had gotten out of his tractor-trailer when it began to roll backwards toward another tractor-trailer.
